I had already read some of Sarah Ballance's work, so I knew I liked her writing style. She uses beautiful imagery but doesn't go into a lengthy, flowery prose you would want to skip. The main characters, Bridger and Laney, were once in love. That was seven years ago and they were young. Now, Laney is coming home and things are hot from the get-go! Ballance does a terrific job of making me believe in their chemistry and then throws in a mystery and suspense story. I won't spoil the ending, but it's a real thing of beauty.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Laney Kent has spent the past seven years remembering her first love. His touch, his kiss, his very memory haunts her to the very depths of her soul. Bridger Jansen was everything she ever wanted, yet circumstances forced her to leave him, and everything between them, behind. She now has a chance to rectify the situation in hopes of fixing what went wrong when she returns to Barrier Shoals.
Nursing a broken heart, Bridger never expected to see Laney ever again. Yet there she is in all of her resplendent beauty. The sight of her takes his breath away and he soon realizes he never stopped loving her. Yet the sting of her betrayal still smarts and he's unsure as to whether they'll be able to pick up where they left off. When it becomes apparent that someone is stalking Laney, Bridger is determined to protect her at all costs.
When a potential serial killer throws her into Bridger's very arms, Laney finds herself unable to resist the attraction running rampant between them. With Bridger's help, she does her best to deduce the identity of the person behind the vicious attacks. All the while, she continues to fight the hunger growing deep inside of herself.
Giving in to the passion flaring between them, the couple is determined to make things work somehow. The threat looming before them does nothing to dampen this fact. Racing against time, they band together in hopes of stopping the sordid attacks before the culprit has a chance to end Laney's own life.
I totally enjoyed this story. Granted, it's not very long, but Sarah is able to inject intrigue and suspense throughout every page of her story. We're able to feel the couple's pain, their love, and their losses as we seek to discover what happens next. I look forward to the next installment of the series.
